Am I missing something? Everyone is talking about fondant and the question was about mixers, right? Anyway, I have the "heavy duty" kitchenaid. And I love it. My mom has the regular kitchen aid and I don't think it is as good. I got mine as a wedding gift from my grandmother, so I don't know what the cost difference is.

The differences are price, speed options- like the high grade KA's have soft start, wattage, bowl size, bowl-lift or tilt head, and some of the attachments are a little different.

it's a pop up window that shows some of the KA's side be side, it's very handy

Thanks! I was wondering what options people like the most. Does everyone like the tilt head or bowl-lift?

I really like the Bowl-lift, I had a tilt head mixer (non-Kitchen aid) and I didn't like having to lower the mixer head into the bowl. If I had put the butter in and It wasn't soft enough it took some working to get the head down. I also like that with the bowl lift I can turn on the mixer and just crank the bowl up into position and I get no splatter. My tilt head mixer had to be off or the ingredients would fly everywhere.

No problem, glad to be able to help...
I have the bowl lift and I love it, my son can turn the handle and put the bowl into position when he wants to help mommy!

I have one of the classic models. I've had no problems with mine whatsoever. I wish I had the one where the bowl lifts. It does get a bit frustrating when you have to lift the head out of the way all the time.

Maybe my next one will be the bowl lift type icon_smile.gif

okay, so now i know that everyone likes the bowl lift. The only kind of stand mixer I've ever used was one where the head tilted back. So, that just seems more natural to me. How do you get the batter off the beaters if you can't lift it a little while it's still running? That's how we always got the batter off anyway.
